The Power Of Touch

When you learn the power of touch

Is healing and love….

Because it is not always known as such.

When you learn it is not to

control

Fear

Intimidate

Hurt

Pain

Torment

Injure

Inflict

Sting.

When you learn this.

If you learn this.

It is an extraordinary

Life changing

Life defining

Life giving

Day.

When you can reach out to others.

And learn the power of touch.

If.

    The power of touch – this is so true! We all need to reach out and touch someone. πŸ™‚

    • I’m not much of a touch, hug, physical comfort giver. But I can do it when needed. I can’t always do it. And I know not everyone else wants that either. But when it’s needed, and wanted, it can sure be healing. πŸ™‚

  4. Indeed. Touch makes you feel alive and worthy. ❀ ❀ ❀

  5. Isaac Newton just received a room shaking applause from the world over sharing his third law, β€œnothing can touch without being touched!” Poised on that all seeing stage, he turns around and motions for someone to join him. Colleen approaches and with humility takes the mic, thanks Mr. Newton, and then says may I add….

    Silence befalls the place as she integrates a deeper understanding, and with her last words of…When you can reach out to others.
    And learn the power of touch.
    If.

    I agree with you very much! Touching really helps us connect. Touching the arm, a quick hug, it makes a big difference.

    • It’s only recently that I can ‘make’ myself do this for others. But when I can, it sure does help others. I can naturally do it with my children and grandchildren. But for strangers it’s much more difficult.

        Well, I did remember your post about unwanted hugs so I was little surprised when you wrote this. But I figured you moved on with your thinking and was expressing that. Which you were πŸ™‚

        • πŸ™‚ I’m still not a hug wanter of unwanted persons and their forced touching upon me. That will never change. πŸ˜‰

          But I do recognize the value of touch to others, and their need for it. Nurses are wonderful with this.

    Touch is the best healing. Well said πŸ™‚

    • Thank you Niaaeryn. It sure makes a difference for some. Even though I am not always comfortable with it, when I know it makes a difference for others and I see the need, I can do that for them.

    It is amazing what a gentle, unexpected brush from one’s hand can bring so much joy.

  9. mewhoami says:

    That is very true. Some people don’t know how to touch without stinging, sometimes even when they have the best intentions. We must learn to love gently.

    Wow, MBC. A beautiful I Do moment. Thank you for your words and BlogHead.

  11. I think you’ve really spoken truth when referencing the POWER of touch. That power can go in positive or negative directions, yes, but to really think of the good we can do with a gentle touch, is power going both ways. The giver and the receiver benefit, I think. This is a very special reminder, Colleen. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you Debra. I didn’t want to mislead….because I do have very defined boundaries. And I’ve written about this previously. I live and work in a world where I am well aware that there are those who do benefit from that reassuring, comforting, life saving touch/hug/hand to hold on to. I’ve not always been comfortable being the one to offer that physical comfort to others (others outside of my comfort zone). I don’t know that I’ve ever been in a situation where I recognized someone needed this and I did not respond, possibly I chose to not recognize it????? But I try very hard to be aware. And when I do, I am as much a receiver of the benefit, I know. Thank you Debra. (I think this was longer than my post!) πŸ˜‰
